Superdrug and Lush Haul

I've purchased a few things recently, uh oh!  I was starting to feel a bit naughty but then I realised, I hadn't actually spent that much, all of these products are super affordable, barring the LUSH product, however; read my justification for why it is perfectly acceptable below.

Superdrug and Lush Haul

First up is something I literally purchased today so I decided to add it into this post. It is the 'Inecto Pure Coconut Hair Repair Treatment', this cost me just £1.50 from Superdrug. I have no idea what to expect from this, all I do know is that it smells good!

Next up is the 'Collection Sheer Loose Powder', I've seen this pop up here and there on a few blogs and considering I wanted to try a translucent powder as well as needing it to be a cheap one at that (student budget) I decided to go with this. At just £2.99 I love it so far, it has replaced my Rimmel Stay Matte which I have run out of and that I do not plan to buy again. Collection products can be purchased from Superdrug and Boots.

Next up is the new 'MUA Undressed Too Palette', again this is from Superdrug and it cost me just £4, even less with student discount....oh how I will miss that little card! I've read that this is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, I cannot comment as I do not have the Urban Decay version however from images online it does look similar! I saw this first mentioned by Sandra, her blog being 'The Black Pearl Blog', check it out for comparisons to the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette as her swatches of the two are brilliant!

Lastly is a product that I have wanted since I first saw it at Christmas. It is the 'LUSH Feeling Younger Skin Tint', this can be used as a highlighter for cheek bones and brow bones, it can also be used to brighten the under eye area; as well as this you can also mix it into your foundation. So far I have only used it as a highlighter and I have to say I'm really enjoying the results. This little gem cost me £12 and at first I thought yikes, this is a little extreme however you need such a small amount I just know it will last me well into next year.

As far as I'm aware everything featured above is cruelty free.

  1. I love the Collection powder, always repurchase that! The pressed version is pretty good too for travelling with etc.
    The hair treatment sounds gorgeous, I'll have to keep an eye out for that!

    1. oo I didn't see the pressed version, I will look next time. I liked the idea of the loose powder as I was under the impression it would be light on top of my foundation, I'm so pleased with it :) xx

    1. oo I don't know, I had to ask the staff to see if they had it in. They fetched one for me although I have to say they still were not on the shelves yesterday when I went in, maybe they gave it me a little early. Oh well! It is nice :) xx

  4. That MUA palette looks gorgeous, I have no doubt it is a great dupe for the overrated (in my opinion) Nake 2 palette, given MUA products's high quality x

    1. I swatched it yesterday and it's not too bad at all, there are some shades which are not very pigmented, about three of them I think but for the price I'm not complaining! Yes, I have been impressed with MUA, not everything is my cup of tea but their eyeshadows are pretty great! xx

  5. Just came across your blog - LOVE it!
    Great post!! I wish I knew if MUA was available in Canada; I don't think so though!
    Looks like a great mini-haul, and so affordable too!
    Can't wait to read your back posts now ;)

    1. Thank you so much Allie! Your comment made my evening as I was feeling a tad down, thank you :)

      I know they do International Delivery, it is like £7.50 so maybe you could order a heap of stuff or split it with friends? xx

    1. I know they do International delivery as I had a look after I read your comment. It is nearly the full price of two of those MUA palettes though, but I guess you could order a few things or do one bulk order with friends to try it.

      Undressed palettes are my favourite :) xx

  8. I see you wrote that post some time ago and that's why I wanna ask: what do you think about the MUA palette? because I really want to buy it but I don't know if it's worth it ;)
